. they have ballistic missiles. and we have to take that very seriously. the secretary of defense hagel took a position that we're going to improve and add more defense to any type of missile that can come on the west coast of the united states, alaska and also california. >> i want to ask you about that. first, the deputy secretary of defense is in seoul today for the joint military exercises i referenced. he said north korea's threats would deepen the commitment to seoul and that u.s. budget cuts wouldn't alter our defense of south korea. we have 30,000 troops in seoul, second only to afghanistan. that is a massive commitment. with all the cullbacks in the defense department, isn't this a scenario that has to be up for trimming just by definition. >> we have to prioriize and always be on top of the national security when it deals with american lives and threats from other governments, terrorist groups and issues like that. got news even with the issue which is really a problem that needs to be resolved is that when it comes to the department of defense, they have the ability to

threat more seriously? i mean it seems we have a missile defense program the president is rebooting. but are we taking it seriously enough? >> well, i certainly think that the recent set of tests, the missile tests in december and then the nuclear test in february in which they appeared to have advanced their programs has created enough of a concern that i think we are taking it more seriously. last week there was an announcement of our intent to move to put 14 new interceptors, missile defense interceptors up which is a sign that we're taking this quite seriously now. but i think we should. >> all right. thank you very much, victor. we appreciate you taking the time tonight. >>> and now to a story we've been "outfront" on, the mysterious hanging death of 31-year-old yelled shane todd. he is from montana. but he was found dead in his apartment in singapore. the fbi is now investigating the case. secretary of state john kerry and attorney general eric hold rer asking questions of the singapore government. singapore police say todd committed suicide. todd's parents say it was murder.

but the defense department which, of course, already has its own program, would be the only agency to operate and fly the drones. daily beast reporter daniel klegman first broke the story and he tells "outfront" the shift would add an extra layer of accountability because the military has a much more vigorous vetting process when it comes to a kill list. since 2004 the cia conducted 365 drone strikes in pakistan alone. >>> the operator of the fukushima nuclear plant says a rat is to blame for a power outage. a rat may have caused a short circuit in a switchboard that led to the outage and that led to the cooling system to fail. obviously there is no laughing matter. it made us wonder could a rat take down a plant in the united states? it's not likely. critters can cause problems. but facilities here have several backup systems and fukushima is still trying to recover theirs. it sounded like one of those things it's easy to say it could never happen here until it does. >>> a set of giant rocket engines used in an apollo mission have been recovered from the darkest depths of the sea. no

defense right from the get go. not just all out war but even the small scale attacks. so what are we talking about? well, north carolina was accused of sinking torpedoing a south korean ship. so one of the provications could be north korean ships going into these disputed waters which they have in the past. also air. north korean jets flying into south korean airspace. they came close to violating the dmz just last year. south korea had to scramble four fighter jets in response. and finally, shelling these border islands like they did a couple years ago, that also would very likely invite a response. some of the other reasons are to step up the cooperation between u.s. and south korean troops as well as act as a deterrent. for example, just recently, he threatened to wipe out entire south korean military units on some of the other border islands. erin? >> chris, a lot of people watching will say okay, so does this open america up to more serious conflict, to war? >> reporter: it actually opens the u.s. up to smaller conflicts. but those smaller conflicts are more likely to happen and
